More Than One

Quizmasters often test mentalities,

by asking folks to name pluralities,

of things of many different sorts.

Like soldiers can be called 'cohorts'.

There are 'flights' of geese and jets and stairs,

and socks are sometimes found in 'pairs'.

Young ladies curls are massed in 'bangs',

and crooks unite themselves in 'gangs'.

Such gangs can join to form a 'mafia',

but alas that only rhymes with 'raffia'.

Autumn Fayre

at the Arts and Crafts Fayre
one stall stripped bare
had nothing on at all

across the hall from the refreshments room
it could be seen
inbetween the hanging- quilts and raffia mats

and there he sat
tea-cup rattling on plate
an octodegenerate
eyes fixed on those long smooth legs
he lingered at the dregs

then from his pursed lips
the semblance of a sigh
there was that taste now bitter-sweet
and he can't remember why

Freedom!

Freedom!


Give me freedom, yes, freedom like a bird,
As the sun reign in the day, and moon falls at night.
Freedom of liberty, not by my strife or might,
Let this ashes be forgotten, like a phonix aroused from dead.

Give me freedom, and my rainbows be revived,
For fortune seated on the path whence am deprived.
Let me stumble, faint and rise, to know the laws of life,
And success to embrass greatness, as peace relieves strife.

Give me freedom, like a loosened rain, from the webs of the cloud,
Let me break like hailstones, that flourishes when allowed!
Sniff not my trace, or nose around my darkened paths,
To observe the voice of my bleeding wounds in traps or darts.

Give me freedom, and let victory unchain my hope,
For the fastest horse never race when stifled with a stableā€˜s rope.
